RE: Isaac Truax
No, I don't mind if you would like to use the photo.
I have added his date of birth.

Photo error.
J. Speare, please delete your photo of the cemetery sign, from the "Old Tent Cemetery", in Ohio Co., WV.


It belongs at the "Cross Creek Tent Cemetery", in Brooke Co., WV.

In fact, both the photos for the "Cross Creek Tent Cemetery" exhibit this same cemetery sign. Which should make it crystal clear, it doesn't belong at the "Old Tent Cemetery".

Thank you for your co-operation.

Old Tent

Please remove your photo from the Old Tent Cem, on Peter's Run Rd. and post it to the correct Old Tent. (pls send me the link.)

Above, is the link to Old Tent Cem. on Peter's Run Rd., near Olgeby Park, Elm Grove, WV. I have photos of all the graves already posted to F.A.G.

I believe two names are ATKINSON.

James Atkinson, dod 12/31/1826 age 55.

Margaret Atkinson, dod 8/13/1816, w/o James.

At the intersection of Old Rt 40 and Peter's Run Rd. is the Bella Via Restaurant, in Elm Grove, WV. Drive North, up the hill. Near the top, on the right is the Old Tent Cem., next to a brick house. No sign. The couple living in the brick house, watch over the cemetery.

I wonder if there is a connection between these two Old Tent Cemeteries ?

East of Old Tent is Stone Church Cem., in Elm Grove and further East is West Alexander, in PA.
Both of these cemeteries are rather old.

The genealogy room of the Wheeling public library has a wealth of information.

There's quite a number of Atkinsons in Ohio Co., WV and Belmont Co., OH.

Cross Creek Church sign
I see you posted a nice photo of the Cross Creek Church, at the Old Tent Cemetery. Perhaps you can help me, for I don't remember any such sign at Old Tent, which is an abandoned cemetery, on Peter's Run Rd, near Olgeby Park, Wheeling WV.

Transcription Book

Thanks. Yes, I am on Facebook. I am connected through the Aslings. My grandmother on my mother's side was an Asling and her father George was from Uxbridge. I was at the Asling family reunion in Uxbridge in August 2010. I connected through Patricia Asling who is also active in genealogy. Many of the folks in the cemetery are related.

I also sent for the book on the transcriptions in the cemetery. So I should be able to add others to the cemetery and give them to family Members who ask for them. I also have a large site of 10,000+ people included (the world edition).

To order one or more of the following cemetery transcriptions, send a cheque or money order to: Ontario Genealogical Society, Durham Region Branch, Box 174, Whitby, Ontario, L1N 5S1. Include the listed price plus $5.00 postage for the first cemetery, plus 15% of the total amount to cover expenses. U. S. and international residents please pay in U. S. funds.

Greenbank Cemetery

I think the listing you have in the Greenbank cemetery are in the wrong cemetery. The correct one is Bethel Grrenbank Cemetery web site
I know that this is the correct cemetery as I was in it in August 2011.

You should delete these entries for the Aslings. Serch for the Bethel cemetery (Greenbank and you should have the correct one. I am going to add the Aslings to that Cemetery.

Madaline Asling
Sorry It was not Magdaline to transfer to Niel. I can take this over (whichever one you like) as long as you delete the other one.

Duplicates for Magdaline Truax

It appears that for the last two years we have two duplicates and that Neil Cammeron has additional information. I was also at the cemetery in 2011 and have pictures and dates.

Magdaline Truax
wife of 2nd great grand uncle
Birth 07 Nov 1823 in Brock, Ontario, Canada
Death 07 Jun 1904 in Reach Township, Ontario County, Ontario, Canada

Can you please pass this on to Neil or clean it up. The only other option since it has been two years is to contact Find A Grave and see if they can make the tranfer. If no we can just create another on and ask them to delete the other two.
